Samantha Bond and Hugh Bonneville star in this entertaining sitcom about a writer whose romance novel is interrupted by meeting a real man
Author Anna Shelby is desperately trying to finish her latest bodice-ripper, a torrid tale of passion and jealousy set against a dazzling period background. But she's finding it hard to concentrate on her plotlines as, after years of having a purely fictional love life, she's finally met a real, live man.
Unfortunately, her fantasies about Brian are constantly interrupted by her characters, chirpy Cockney muse Minnie and chisel-jawed hero Lord Robert. Concerned about the lack of authorial presence, they insist on leaping off the page to narrate their own story...
As love blossoms for Anna, her creative juices begin to flow - but when Brian's friend Dougie lures him away to the Shetland Islands to build fibreglass ducks, she's hit by a bout of writer's block. With her book on hold, her deadline looming and her heart broken, is there any hope of a happy ending?
Written by award-winning playwright Michelle Read, this sparkling rom-com stars Samantha Bond as Anna and Hugh Bonneville as Brian, with a full cast including Adjoa Andoh, Andrew Wincott and Michael Fenton Stevens.
